     Runway 15 Southerly SIDs Decision document (CAA change approval)

    Note: BAL suspended its request for approval of the 2 northbound SIDs (as discussed in the Decision document, paragraph 17).  BAL has re-designed the SIDs.  The aim of the re-design work was to produce aircraft tracks that better reflected the proposals consulted upon.  BAL has submitted these re-designs to the CAA (see below).
